Finally hitting the Ho Chi Minh ( HCM ) highway today before a rest day tomorrow in Ngoc Lac. The going is getting tougher out this way with poor roads and some big hills yet to come. A dangerous day today with my guide Giang ( Zed ) having a close call when he was approaching a truck trying to get through a muddy hole but stalled and came rolling back towards Zed who by luck had great reflexes and managed to slip to the left before the truck rolled back on top of him.. Boy !! a close call.
